Hollywood 2019: Billy Porter Cancels Equinox Membership

Pose star Billy Porter weighed in on the recent controversy of Equinox.

“Leave,” he said in response to the uproar that came after Equinox and SoulCycle owner Stephen Ross hosted a fundraiser for President Trump at his Hamptons estate.

“That’s what activism is,” Porter continued. “It doesn’t work unless you hit these people where their bank accounts are. You don’t get to have these views and rape and pillage from us. That whole business is built on queer people, people of color, the whole business is built on that. So we need to go. It is an us and a they. That’s what it is. I didn’t do that part. That’s where we are and so therefore, my Equinox membership is canceled.”
